Sustainable Tourism can turn y....
Living Rio de Janeiro from Para Ti can be a unique experience and it might change your life.
Lidia and Mauro the host are very nice and interesting people.
I stayed at Para Ti several times and I tried different rooms.
My favourite are the ones on the waterfall. On the back of the rooms lies a little favela, typical in Rio de Janiero. Villa Canoas is actually a peaceful community and for us westerns is a great experience to be hosted in such a location.
You can walk to the beach in 10 minutes, be in Ipanema in 15 minutes taxi, or drive through the forest, Santa Teresa or even the Corcovado.
The little church of Sao Conrado, Pedra da Gavea and Pedra bonita and....if you look up, you see men hang gliding in the blue sky. Worth jumping!

Mini tropical paradise
I felt incredibly lucky to find this place. I lucked upon it because I was trying to find something affordable during Carnival. Now that I've been there it's where I'll stay next time no matter when it is.
The location is great. Quick bus or taxi ride from Copacabana and everything else, less than 10 min easy walk from an awesome beach, away from a lot of the hustle and bustle of other neighborhoods but accessible to everything.
The guesthouse itself is kind of tucked into a ravine so the guest rooms are literally over a stream and you can hear the sound all night, which is lovely. The guesthouse feels like it's half in the jungle, surrounded by huge trees. Little monkeys came by for a snack at breakfast a couple times.
The rooms are very simple but adequate. I didn't see a mosquito and there was both a fan over my bed and another floor fan so the heat was not that bad even without air conditioning. I never had a problem with the wifi and there are very nice outdoor areas to sit and work or surf the web if you want. Breakfast is great.
The hosts/owners Lidia and Mauro are excellent people, very welcoming, of course full of knowledge about the area, how to get around, places to go etc.
The guesthouse is at the top of a very rich neighborhood but right above it a small favela is squeezed into the ravine. The guesthouse is operated to make money to fund a program for children from the favela- so the operation is really about helping to serve needy kids more than making money. The area is totally safe and I think Sao Conrado is a great place to stay. I highly recommend this guesthouse.

Sanctuary in Rio
I decided to go to Rio to celebrate New Year's Eve. Last minute plans called for drastic measures. Hotels are really expensive in Copacabana and Ipanema, so I opted for Guesthouse Para Ti with totally reasonable rates considering it was New Year's Eve. The location is in S?o Conrado, just southwest of Ipanema & Leblon and before Barra da Tijuca. It's very difficult for me to describe Guesthouse Para Ti, because it's very much a simple and non luxurious place, yet offers so much more than superficial amenities. The hosts are a charming and warm hearted, Italian couple, Iliana and Mauro. They've converted part of the property into guest rooms with a view onto a little river with lush tropical foliage. The rooms are simple and there isn't air conditioning, but fans are supplied and I slept very well. The place is green, and spiritual. Air conditioning just wouldn't be right. You can shower outdoors under the big banana trees with cool well water and go to bed totally refreshed. In the morning complimentary breakfast is served with fresh fruit, breads, juices and coffee. Iliana and Mauro are both fascinating people and make you feel like you've come to stay as their personal friends. The beach is really beautiful and only a 10 minute walk away. You're right below a big mountain where the HangGliding and ParaGliding launches and Iliana and Mauro can set it up for you. To get to Ipanema you can catch a 20-25 reais cab or the bus for 3 reais (there's even the blue bus with a/c for 13.50 reais) Everything is right down the street from the guesthouse before the beach. By next year the metro will be up and running with a stop nearby. Right behind the Guesthouse is a favela. Iliana and Mauro run educational, artistic and meditational programmes for the children of the favela. These programmes were set up by Iliana's father and Iliana and Mauro are well known and appreciated in the area. Guesthouse Para Ti is truly a little sanctuary and I'll come back again.

Warning 3rd world accommodatio....
Warning 3rd world less than favela style accommodation for 1st world price. We had to pay in advance thinking it was because it was during the World Cup. No it was because the accommodation was terrible. We arrived when dark and were greeted by very pleasant hosts who did everything to encourage us to stay. The hostel is set adjacent to a favela, set in a living forest who's contributions go to help the neighbours. No a/c no fans insect infested etc. Jungle style. The hosts acknowledged the description in trip advisor and hotels,com is not accurate. An understatement to say the least that after taking our hard earned money $986 AU for triple 3 nights. The room had a foam mattress to fit two kids and for the third there was another one hard up against a wall. The room looked like a prison cell with a very small bathroom. Mud brick rendered walls. The breakfast was being served in an incomplete portion of the house. It may appeal to those wishing to experience staying in the amazon jungle but not for 3 weary middle aged men wanting to rest and simply experience Rio and the World Cup. Feel awkward to post this review given the hostel's cause but it's important the potential guests are informed beforehand.
